Gardner-Tanenbaum Group bought the old Lincoln Plaza Hotel property, two buildings on 18 acres, in August 2011, with tentative plans to restore it as a hotel, or for student housing or a campus, or apartments. When Oklahoma Health Care Authority let it be known a year ago that it wanted to move from Shepherd Mall, the developer made a proposal and the agency accepted it. Work began to renovate the property at 4345 N Lincoln Blvd. earlier this year.
